Sunday Strollers- Walk in Maghull

20160221_125210Sunday Strollers went on their third walk on 22nd February.  12 members took part.  As the trains were not running we decided to do a local walk. A lot of the footpaths in Maghull and Lydiate are very wet so it was decided to keep to the canal.  We met at Maghull station and got on the local bus which took us to the starting point at Maghull Community Centre. We walked along the canal to Brewers Bridge, when four of the group then decided to make use of the new bench there, whilst the rest of the group carried on to bridge that leads to the Bootle Arms.  We then all returned back to the station via the canal and had lunch at the Mogul.  The walk was 4 or 5 miles long depending on which walk you did or if you like to count steps it was 8000 or 10000 steps.  One of our members is only able to manage 2000 steps at present so she made her way to the Mogul and joined the group for lunch after completing her 2000 steps.  Most of the group then walked home after the meal, so increasing the steps they had already completed.  We were lucky with the weather and the sun even showed its face!!!  Our next walk will be on 20th March, when we will meet at Maghull station at 10.50 and will go over on the ferry to Seacombe and walk to New Brighton, were we will have lunch in Wetherspoons.  Members can then decided if they want to walk back to Seacombe and get ferry back to Liverpool. or get the train/bus home from New Brighton    20160221_134228

  1. Thanks John and Brenda. Lovely walk. I’ve lived in Maghull for over 30 years and have never walked on that part of the canal path so it was an eye opener!!
    Great company for Sunday lunch too!!
